About the Author

Christopher Orlebar joined British Airways, then BOAC, in 1969, he became a Concorde pilot and instructor in 1976 flying the aircraft for 10 years. He retired from BA in 2000. A Fellow of the Royal Aeronautical Society, he is a frequent contributor to TV aviation documentaries, a lecturer and writer.


Concorde is one of the wonders of the modern technical world - the first commercially successful airliner capable of speeds in excess of Mach 2 (twice the speed of sound). This book, now in its fifth Edition, describes the history of supersonic flight, the development and operation of Concorde. It includes the story of the tragedy at Paris, the accident investigation and Concorde's restoration. There is also a look into the future of high-speed flight.
